Sparrow是一個電郵收發應用,憑其出色的手勢操作優化和快速順暢的運作效能,在Mac和iPhone上的受歡迎程度遠勝系統內置的程式。不少人(包括筆者)已經將Sparrow作為系統預設的電郵收發應用。官方稍早前還預告即將推出iPad版,不過一切己終止,因為被Google收購了!

Sparrow昨晚在官方網站上發出告示,原文如下:

We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.

We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.
We had an amazing ride and can’t thank you enough.

由即日起正式被Google收購,而他們的團隊將會加入Google的Gmail部門開發新的項目。至於Sparrow的未來動向,官方告示說會此App會繼續存在,並會為已購買了的使用者提供服務,但就沒有說明未來動向。

而另一封由高層發給使用者的封件中,就比較明確一些,由內文可見Sparrow在加入Google後將會停止新功能開發,換言之早前預告即將會推出iPad版也會即時告吹。他們表示在加入Google後將會開發一個大項目,但目前還沒有什麼資料,如果是為Gmail推出一個像Sparrow一樣出色的獨立應用也不錯。

Hello,
We’re excited to let you know that Sparrow has been acquired by Google! You can view our public announcement here, but I wanted to reach out directly to make sure you were aware of the news.We will continue to make available our existing products, and we will provide support and critical updates to our users. However, as we’ll be busy with new projects at Google, we do not plan to release new features for the Sparrow apps.
It’s been an honor and a pleasure to build products for all of our wonderful users who have supported us over the years. We can’t thank you enough.
We look forward to working on some new and exciting projects at Google!

筆者個人對是次收購感覺並不好,嘆借如此出色的軟件被Google收購後而消失,日後出現的就是掛著Google logo的東西,就像Instagram被Facebook收購後植入相關元素,變得不再Instagram那樣。
